TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE WEATHER

PROJECTION STATION

The Weather Projection Station uses 3 x AA,

IEC LR6, 1.5V

batteries. To install and replace the batteries, please follow the steps below:

1. Insert finger or other solid object in the space at the bottom center of the battery compartment and lift up to

2. remove the cover.

Insert batteries observing the correct polarity (see marking).

TO INSTALL AND REPLACE BATTERIES IN THE THERMO-

HYGRO TRANSMITTER

The Thermo-hygro transmitter uses 2 x AA, IEC LR6, 1.5V batteries. To install and replace the batteries, please follow the steps below:

1. Remove the battery cover.

2.

3.

Insert the batteries, observing the correct polarity (see marking).

Replace the battery cover on the unit.

Note:

In the event of changing batteries in any of the units, all units need to be reset by following the setting up procedures. This is due to a random security code assigned by the transmitter at start-up. This code must be received and stored by the Weather Projection

Station in the first 3 minutes of power being supplied to the transmitter.

BATTERY CHANGE:

It is recommended to replace the batteries in all units on an annual basis to ensure optimum accuracy of these units.

Please participate in the preservation of the environment.

Return used batteries to an authorized depot.

SETTING UP

The Weather Projection Station can be either batteries-operated or powered by the provided AC-DC adapter.

BATTERY INSTALLATION:

1. First, insert the batteries into the Weather Projection Station (see “T

o install and replace batteries in the Weather Projection Station

”).

2.

3.

4.

Once the batteries are in place, all segments of the LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tone will sound. Then the ALM1 6:00, the indoor temperature and humidity, the time as 12:00, the date as WE 1.1., the moon icon, the weather icons (sun and clouds) will be displayed. If the indoor temperature and indoor humidity are not displayed after 15 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 3 minutes before reinserting them. Once the indoor data is displayed proceed to step 2.

Within 4 minutes of activating the Weather Projection Station, place the batteries into the transmitter (see “

To install and replace batteries in the Thermo-hygro Transmitter

“).

After inserting the batteries into the transmitter, the Weather Projection

Station will start receiving data from the transmitter. The outdoor temperature and humidity should then be displayed on the Weather

Projection Station. If this does not happen after 3 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.

The Weather Projection Station can receive up to 3 remote Outdoor

Thermo-hygro transmitters. If you have purchased additional transmitters, repeat from step 3 for all extra transmitters. However, ensure that you leave 10 seconds in between the reception of the last transmitter and the

5.

6. set-up of the following transmitter. The Weather Projection Station will number the transmitters in the order of set-up, i.e. the first transmitter will have the temperature/humidity displayed with the number 1 against it and so on.

With less than 3 transmitters received, the Weather Projection Station will try to pick up the remaining one in approximately another 3 minutes. If 3 transmitters are received, the Weather Projection Station will stop further reception.

Once the outdoor temperature and the humidity have been received and displayed on the Weather Projection Station, the WWVB time code

7. reception is automatically started. This takes typically between 6-8 minutes in good conditions.

If after 10 minutes, the WWVB time has not been received, use the SET key to manually enter a time initially. The clock will automatically attempt to receive the WWVB time from 12:00 to 6:00 a.m. for a successful reception. When WWVB reception signal is successful, the received time will override the manually set time. The date is also updated with the received time. The next reception attempt will occur on the following day.

(Please refer to notes on

“About WWVB Radio controlled Time”

and

“Manual Time Setting”

).

Your Weather Projection Station is now operational!

Note:

If the batteries are used as the main power source:

1.

2.

Projected image brightness, alarm volume and back-light strength will be weaker when batteries are low

Battery life time will be much less than 1 year; depending on the frequency of projection and alarm.

TO USE THE PROJECTOR POWER ADAPTER

The unit comes with an AC-DC adapter for using the projector for an extended period of time, such as throughout the night.

To connect the AC-DC adapter:

Important!

Make sure that your household voltage is 120V! Otherwise it can result in damaging your Weather Projection Station.

1.

2.

3.

4.

Connect the AC-DC adapter to a wall socket. Plug the adapter into the jack at the side of the Weather Projection Station. All segments of the

LCD will light up briefly and a short signal tone will sound. Then the

ALM 1 6:00, the indoor temperature and humidity, the time as 12:00, the date as WE 1.1., the moon icon, the weather icons (sun and clouds) will be displayed. If the indoor temperature and indoor humidity are not displayed after 15 seconds, remove the batteries and wait for at least 3 minutes before reinserting them.

Within 4 minutes of activating the Weather Projection Station, place the batteries into the transmitter (see “

To install and replace batteries in the Thermo-hygro Transmitter

“).

After inserting the batteries into the transmitter, the Weather Projection

Station will start receiving data from the transmitter. The outdoor temperature and humidity should then be displayed on the Weather

Projection Station. If this does not happen after 3 minutes, the batteries will need to be removed from both units and reset from step 1.

The Weather Projection Station can receive up to 3 remote Outdoor

Thermo-hygro transmitters. If you have purchased additional transmitters, repeat from step 3 for all extra transmitters. However, ensure that you leave 10 seconds in between the reception of the last transmitter and the set-up of the following transmitter. The Weather

Projection Station will number the transmitters in the order of set-up, i.e.

5.

6. the first transmitter will have the temperature/humidity displayed with the number 1 against it and so on.

With less than 3 transmitters received, the Weather Projection Station will try to pick up the remaining one in approximately another 3 minutes.

If 3 transmitters are received, the Weather Projection Station will stop further reception.

Once the outdoor temperature and the humidity have been received and displayed on the Weather Projection Station, the WWVB time code reception is automatically started. This takes typically between 6-8 minutes in good conditions.

7. If after 10 minutes, the WWVB time has not been received, use the SET key to manually enter a time initially. The clock will automatically attempt to receive the WWVB time from 12:00 to 6:00 a.m. for a successful reception. When WWVB reception signal is successful, the received time will override the manually set time. The date is also updated with the received time. The next reception attempt will occur on the following day. (Please refer to notes on

“About WWVB Radio controlled Time”

and

“Manual Time Setting”

).

Your Weather Projection Station is now operational!

Note:

If the Weather Projection Station is powered through the AC-DC adapter, the projection will be constantly ON.

If the Weather Projection Station is battery operated, only when the SNOOZE key is pressed, the projection will turn ON. Once the SNOOZE key is released, there will be no projection.

USING BOTH BATTERIES THE POWER ADAPTOR

If the Weather Projection Station is first powered by batteries and the AC-DC adapter is subsequently used for extended period of time, the main power source of the Weather Projection Station will switch to AC power. The batteries will then act as a backup power source in the case of power failure.

RESETTING

The Weather Projection Station and the Thermo-hygro transmitter need to be reset when one of the following conditions occur:

Unsuccessful 433MHz signal reception.

Malfunction on the units.

Batteries replacement.

For resetting, remove all batteries from the units and unplug the AC-DC adapter from any power source. Wait at least for

3 minutes

before powering

up the Weather Projection Station again. Proceed from step 1 in

“Setting

Up”,“Battery Installation” or “How to use the Projector Adaptor”

.

HOW TO USE THE PROJECTOR

The projector projects the current time and the current outdoor temperature onto the ceiling, preferable within a darkened room. The projection image can also be adjusted in 4 upright positions, each with a rotation of 90º by using the key .

TO PROJECT THE TIME OR TEMPERATURE ONTO A FLAT

SURFACE:

The projector will only project the current time, outdoor temperature or alternate between time/outdoor temperature only.

1.

2.

Point the projection lens to the appropriate direction (maximum distance of the projection is 6 feet/2 meters).

Press the DISPLAY key to select the desired mode for the projection.

There are 3 display modes:

M0 – projecting the current time only.

M1 – projecting the current outdoor temperature only.

M2 – projecting by switching the display of the current time and the current outdoor temperature for every 5 seconds.

3.

Note:

Adjust the projection image in an upright position with the key.

If more than one Thermo-hygro Transmitter is used, only the temperature from transmitter 1 will be projected.

ABOUT WWVB RADIO CONTROLLED TIME

The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology—Time and

Frequency Division) WWVB radio station is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado, and transmits the exact time signal continuously throughout the United States at 60 kHz. The signal can be received up to 2,000 miles away through the internal antenna in the Weather Projection Station. However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during daylight hours. The

Weather Projection Station will search for a signal every night when reception is best.

The WWVB radio station receives the time data from the NIST Atomic clock in

Boulder, Colorado. A team of atomic physicists is continually measuring every second, of every day, to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second per day.

These physicists have created an international standard, measuring a second as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium-133 atom in a vacuum. For more detail, visit http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq.htm. To listen to the NIST time, call (303)499-7111. This number will connect you to an automated time,

announced at the top of the minute in “Coordinated Universal Time”, which is also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This time does not follow

Daylight Saving Time changes. After the top of the minute, a tone will sound for every second. It is possible that your Weather Projection Station may not be exactly on the second due to the variance in the quartz. However, the clock will adjust the quartz timing over the course of several days to be very accurate; under 0.10 seconds per day.

WEATHER FORECAST AND WEATHER TENDENCY:

WEATHER FORECASTING ICONS:

Weather icons in the third section of LCD that can be displayed in any of the following combinations:

Sunny Cloudy with sunny intervals Rainy

For every sudden or significant change in the air pressure, the weather icons will update accordingly to represent the change in weather. If the icons do not change, then it means either the air pressure has not changed or the change has been too slow for the Weather Projection Station to register. However, if the icon displayed is a sun or raining cloud, there will be no change of icon if the weather gets any better (with sunny icon) or worse (with rainy icon) since the icons are already at their extremes.

The icons displayed forecasts the weather in terms of getting better or worse and not necessarily sunny or rainy as each icon indicates. For example, if the current weather is cloudy and the rainy icon is displayed, it does not mean that the product is faulty because it is not raining. It simply means that the air pressure has dropped and the weather is expected to get worse but not necessarily rainy.

Note:

After setting up, readings for weather forecasts should be disregarded for the next 12-24 hours. This will allow sufficient time for the Weather Projection

Station to collect air pressure data at a constant altitude and therefore result in a more accurate forecast.

Common to weather forecasting, absolute accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

The weather forecasting feature is estimated to have an accuracy level of about 75% due to the varying areas the Weather Projection Station has been designed for use. In areas that experience sudden changes in weather (for example from sunny to rain), the Weather Projection Station will be more accurate compared to use in areas where the weather is stagnant most of the time (for example mostly sunny).

If the Weather Projection Station is moved to another location significantly higher or lower than its initial standing point (for example from the ground floor to the upper floors of a house), discard the weather forecast for the next 12-24

hours. By doing this, the Weather Projection Station will not mistake the new location as being a possible change in air-pressure when really it is due to the slight change of altitude.

WEATHER TENDENCY INDICATOR

Working together with the weather icons is the weather tendency indicators

(located on the left and right sides of the weather icons). When the indicator points upwards, it means that the air-pressure is increasing and the weather is expected to improve, but when indicator points downwards, the air-pressure is dropping and the weather is expected to become worse.

Taking this into account, one can see how the weather has changed and is expected to change. For example, if the indicator is pointing downwards together with cloud and sun icons, then the last noticeable change in the weather was when it was sunny (the sun icon only). Therefore, the next change in the weather will be cloud with rain icons since the indicator is pointing downwards.

Note:

Once the weather tendency indicator has registered a change in air pressure, it will remain permanently visualized on the LCD.

INDOOR RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND INDOOR TEMPERATURE:

The indoor temperature and humidity data, the indoor comfort indicator are automatically updated and displayed on the fourth section of the LCD.

Minimum record data

Indoor temperature in °C or ºF

Low battery indicator

Indoor comfort level indicator

.

To reset the MIN/MAX outdoor temperature, and the time at which they were recorded, press and hold the MIN/OUT key for about 4 seconds.

This will reset all MIN/MAX data recorded to the displayed values for that particular transmitter.

TO EXIT THE MANUAL SETTING MODE

To exit the manual setting mode anytime during the manual setting modes, press the SNOOZE key anytime or wait for automatic timeout. The mode will return to normal time display.

BACK-LIGHT

The back-light is automatically switched ON when any keys are pressed. The back-light will be switched on for approximately 10 seconds before automatically switching OFF. However, if the SNOOZE key is pressed and held down, then back-light will remain ON constantly until the key is released.

ABOUT THE OUTDOOR THERMO-HYGRO TRANSMITTER

The range of the Thermo-hygro Transmitter may be affected by the temperature. At cold temperatures the transmitting distance may be decreased. Please bear this in mind when positioning the transmitter. Also the batteries may be reduced in power.

CHECKING FOR 433MHz RECEPTION

If the outdoor temperature and humidity data is not being received within three minutes after setting up (the display shows “- -. - °F” and “- -%” on the outdoor section of the Weather Projection Station after 3 attempts during normal operation), please check the following points:

1.

2.

The distance of the Weather Projection Station or transmitter should be at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from any interfering sources such as computer monitors or TV sets.

Avoid placing the Thermo-hygro transmitter onto or in the immediate proximity of metal window frames.

3. Using other electrical products such as headphones or speakers operating on the 433MHz-signal frequency may prevent correct signal transmission or reception. Neighbors using electrical devices operating on the 433MHz-signal frequency can also cause interference.

Note:

When the 433 MHz signal is received correctly, do not re-open the battery cover of either the transmitter or Weather Projection Station, as the batteries may spring free from the contacts and force a false reset. Should this happen accidentally then reset all units (see

“Setting up”

above) otherwise transmission problems may occur.

The transmission range is around 65-82 feet (20-25 meters) from the transmitter to the Weather Projection Station (in open space). However, this depends on the surrounding environment and interference levels. If no reception is possible despite the observation of these factors, all system units have to be reset (see

“Setting up”

above).

POSITIONING THE THERMO-HYGRO TRANSMITTER:

Each transmitter is supplied with 2 wall mounting screws and plastic anchors.

To wall mount simply:

1. Secure the wall base onto a desired wall using the screws and plastic anchors.

2. Insert the transmitter to the wall base.

Note:

Before permanently fixing the transmitter wall base, pace all units in the desired locations to check that the outdoor temperature and humidity readings are receivable. In event that the signal is not received, relocate the transmitters or move them slightly as this may help the signal reception.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE:

Extreme temperatures, vibration and shock should be avoided as these may cause damage to the units and give inaccurate forecasts and

• readings.

When cleaning the display and casings, use a soft damp cloth only. Do not use solvents or scouring agents as they may mark the LCD and casings.

Do not submerge the units in water.

Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and damage. Replace only with new batteries of the recommended type.

Do make any repair attempts to the units. Return it to their original point of purchase for repair by a qualified engineer. Opening and tampering with the units may invalidate their guarantee.

Do not expose the units to extreme and sudden temperature changes, this may lead to rapid changes in forecasts and readings and thereby reduce their accuracy.
